Posted April 9, 2018

Following the FX 9500, Zebra Technologies has announced the New FX9600 Fixed RFID Reader. The new FX9600 has a rugged design for any industrial space. High read performance easily tracks the highest volume of densely tagged case, pallets, and items that goes in and out of your warehouse and docks daily.

What makes FX9600 the Best Fixed Reader?

Top of the Line Performance
High RF sensitivity for faster pick, pack, and ship. The more efficient the more profitable your operation can be.

Deployment Simplicity
FX9600 can parse data directly on the reader, so less data transmitted to backend servers, increasing bandwidth, and improving network performance.

Connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices
Can support Bluetooth dongle, so no need for excessive hard-wired connections to the access point.

More Read Points Per Reader
Four- port and Eight Port Model, enabling you to cover more dock doors and portals with fewer readers- lowering your initial investment, as well as deployment time and costs.

Rugged Design for Tough Environments
IP53 rating to ensure uptime even in damp, dusty work areas, extreme heat or subzero temperatures.

The Guide to Succeeding with UDI Compliance

Posted April 5, 2018

To go along with yesterday’s blog about Unique Device Identification Compliance some may be wondering what is required to be fully compliant with the FDA. With another UDI deadline approaching it’s important to know the steps that will help you get in compliance. With the help of Zebra Technologies, they wrote a small walk through to help you through each step.

Read the walk through below to clear up any confusion. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact our dedicated account managers.


Unique Device Identification Compliance

Posted April 4, 2018

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established and continues to implement a unique device identification system to properly identify medical devices through their distribution and use. Once fully implemented, the label of most devices will include a unique device identifier (UDI) in human and machine-readable form.

The unique device identification system will be phased in over the next couple of years and offers several benefits. Implementing UDI will improve patient safety, modernize device post-market surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation. To learn more about UDI read the infographic below!

Tech Tip Tuesday: What Do I Need To Print Out My Barcodes?

Posted March 6, 2018

Following up on the last tech tip Tuesday, now that you have figured out how to get your own barcodes it is time to print them out. So what do you need to print out the barcodes?

Barcodes.
First, you have to design and create the barcodes in a barcode software. A few that we suggest is Bartender by Seagull Scientific, Nice Label, or Teklynx. These software allow you to design your label and barcodes to hold the info that you need.
The next thing you have to do is to choose a printer that suitable for your need. Below are the printer size we recommend, depending on how many labels you print out in a day and what size do you want your labels to be.

Printers.
Direct Thermal– chemically treated label is heated directly (short-term life on label) Usually used on shipping packages.
Thermal Transfer– ribbon ink is transferred onto the label (will stay on longer on label) Usually used on warehouse/retail store racks.

Desktop Printer– This type of printer, like the GX420t, is made for small volume applications. Usage is suitable for about 300-500 labels per week. It is perfect for asset labeling in an office or light printing duties at a retail store.
Industrial Printer It is larger and more rugged than desktop models for high volume print applications, like the Datamax I-4212e. Usage is suitable for printing thousands of labels per day. It is great for manufacturing and distribution centers as well as large retailers.
Mobile Printer– This type of printer provides mobility to users, like the Zebra QLn320. It’s small existence allows users to print on the go and perfect for delivery drivers and field workers to create label or receipt.

If you have any questions about what kind of software and printer that you should use, feel free to contact our dedicated account managers and they will be able to provide you with the best solution for your application.
